My only 78 spring show and it was soooo much fun! My friend and I made the venture down from NY on the Amtrak. 1st set we dosed on some DarkStar 4 way. We worked the floor to the stage in front of Phil by BIODTL. Candyman was a religious experience. Having successfully made it to the front we cleared out for a bathroom and water break and headed for the top of the Spectrum for set two. Behind the stage we watched Bill Walton and Jerry join the Rhythm Devils. Jerry looked looked like a kid playing with a toy truck, pure joy! By Truckin we were back on the floor dancing.
This was a heady time for me and and the band. Hope you enjoy as much as I do

Check out the playful interplay between the boys on this Truckin. Thrown in extra lyrics and Phil leads. Bobby oh mamma ya at one point. Interesting stuff. There were nights they just had so much fun it seems maybe more then we did running around seeing them EVERYWHERE.
I THINK THIS SHOW IS OUTSTANDING,MAYBE JUST BECAUSE OF THE SOUND FROM THE UPLOADER. Another amazing sound quality. Thank you for your work on this site.

PS My my look at the time I had that I almost forgot
I know I get carried away with my support of Donna in the face of her haters, but she is peaking here. Just brilliant on Good Love (one of the best post-Pig GL's) and Terrapin, and just baby I'm amazed by her on MAGS.
Of course Jerry is fierce. The sound is fantastic. I'm a-dancing fool.

This is an epic second set. Typical looking song selection with some extra effort in energy.
Bertha-> Good Lovin' is fire. Definitely came to play.
Terrapin is of great power. Awesome vocalizing by Jerry, high intensity from the drummers, and Keith is NOT asleep at the piano. The Playin' that follows is trippy but structured.
They seemed to be having a lot of fun in 78'. I always love watching their November 1978 Saturday Night Live performance. Not only do they kill it, but they play with such assurance and ease that it starts to get cheeky and punchy, in a good way. This Spectrum performance has that sort of attitude as well.
Where's the first set? That looks great as well. For now this update is greatly appreciated.
